The « Magic of the Mall » : an analysis of form, function, and meaning in the contemporary retail built environment

Auteur :
GOSS, J.

Description :
Shopping is the most important contemporary social activity. Developers and designers of the retail built environment exploit the power of place and an intuitive understanding of the structuration of space to facilitate consumption. They manipulate shoppers' behavior through the configuration of space, and design a symbolic landscape. These strategies are examined to obtain an understanding of how the retail built environment works.
